A real-time strategy game set in World War II, Company of Heroes brings to life, in full cinematic detail, the greatest war mankind has ever known. Company of Heroes is built on Relic’s next-generation Essence Engine and also utilizes the Havok Physics engine, delivering cinematic visual detail in a world completely driven by realistic physics. Gamers will experience the journey of the brave men of Able Company in a deep single-player campaign that begins with the invasion of Normandy through their fight across Europe, all set against the most dynamic battlefield ever seen in a game. Company of Heroes’ completely destructable environment means no two battles ever play out in the same way. Advanced squad AI delivers startling new realism and responsiveness, bringing soldiers to life as they interact with the environment and execute advanced squad tactics to eliminate the opposition forces.

In Company of Heroes, destruction is a component of the game in a way that we haven’t seen since “X-Com” let us root out sectoids by bringing down entire farmhouses.100Yahoo!
Company of Heroes is probably, (if not already considered), the greatest real-time strategy game of all-time. A must-play for any fan of the genre. Truly a masterpiece.100mhzaiyen

Another average RTS game. It is a lot of fun until about level 3, where you will die again and again while wondering why your 4 riflemen can’t defeat 10 tanks.70debigman
Game is too complicated. Games that are too complicated aren’t so fun as they are unintuitive.60KevLooney
My truthful honorable incorruptible conclusive rating of this considered game: 7.70Yaav13
This game is timeless and a must-play for anyone who loves classic RTS games!0NothingButHype
This is up there with Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge as one of the best RTS games of all time.0ShawnD
Fun game, but also somewhat limited and very simple game. Ok, to keep you engaged, but not memorable.70Wiebe
